I'm wondering whether he runs World Cross this year. I don't think Michigan has a big indoor season so I'd like to see him focus his attention on that. I'd be interested to see how he adapts to the 8k.
You are correct - our indoor season is not very big. The state athletic association does not recognize indoor track, so all of the events are put on by the coach's association. Most top athletes will participate in a few indoor meets and usually the (unofficial) state meet, but the last couple of years some larger indoor national meets have coincided with the state meet watering down the state level of competition even further. I would love to see Grant give world cross a go. I have not heard anything about his winter plans, but will put some feelers out and report back.
